an environment where democrats are treated better in virginia than in most parts of the south. you're seeing a lot of people that have come to washington. there're a lot military bases. people coming from other parts of the country. the environment is much more competitive than any other southern state. virginia is one of the most competitive states because of these changes. host: we have a map of virginia where senator mccain and president obama won. you can see patches of blue in northern virginia and in the east. guest: what you see is an america in miniature -- you have an area with a lot of highly educated people and defense contractors and government workers and a lot of affluent people who tend to be democratic. it depends speak more conservative in other parts of the state'. in the south side of virginia, you are pretty conservative voters. the democratic votes tend to be concentrated in the cities like richmond and hampton roads. the democrats tend to win the cities. the battle in virginia tends to be in the suburbs. what you have is a state that is up for grabs. geographically, rep
difficult environment. it is certainly up to individuals to judge for themselves whether that change has been something that they thought should occur that they should be supportive of. obviously, there are people who feel that the campaign's slogan of "hope and change" has not transpired. that is one of the things that you come across in campaigns. you have to get a slogan. it has to be snappy. it cannot be too long and people latch onto it and they start to hold you to it. when you hit the real world of actually heading the government and doing all the things that need to be done, you find that you cannot do things as rapidly as you would like. you will find some things you cannot do at all because of the political climate. people sometimes have the impression that the president with the stroke of a pen or simply by saying i command, and things will get done. the political process in the united states is very complex. you have lots of players. all of these players must work in concert. and when things break down in a major part of the process, things just don't get done or things take
